[L4D]Trio Concepts by Gothamed [L4D]Trio Concepts by Gothamed
No one else flags their zombies, so I shall not either.
It has been nearly three years since I have drawn a L4D zombie, or anything remotely related. 
And that is just far too long for my tastes. So let me introduce my kiddos that I've had about four years now. |D
Ignore the typos, it's 5AM and I reaaaally should be sleeping.



First up! Gary [Smoker], he's a generally average Smoker. In the AU he was created for (one where the zombies are pretty much the only humanoids left during the outbreak. They pretty much learn to live like humans (somewhat) again, and yeah. One of those boring ass settings, but our's was pretty cool because there were like little groups who somehow were cured or there were babies born without the infection. I don't know. The original explanation was much cooler than mine.) Anyways, Gary was usually just a guy who lingered in the background keeping Parker from blowing up or something equally as dumb. If I remember correctly he painted pictures and junk when he wasn't y'know. Looking intimidating. Like I said, he was *average* in terms of ability, unless you count his handywork with a paintbrush. Otherwise there's nothing special about him. (The whiter area of his hair is indeed supposed to be white. Idk why he had one random patch of grey at 22.)

Second, Parker [Hunter]! The simple fact his name is a horrible pun should tell you all you need to know. He -sucked- at... well hunter-ing? Yeah. That. He was uncoordinated and his sense of smell is as poor as his vocabulary for insults. The fact he's even still alive is probably thanks to Gary dragging his sorry-ass back to safety. In fact, Parker actually has a lot more 'fear of god' than a merciless beast should, exploding once left the poor kid traumatized of loud noises and the sound of pipe bombs. (He's the definition of useless, he generally just mopes around over nothing when not running around with Gary.) Parker literally was a softie compared to other Hunters, he even has a possum that he would rather stupidly protect with his life, why? Not a clue. It was just one of those weird quirks all OCs tend to have. He actually had some backstory to, which consisted of accidentally giving himself food poisoning with microwavable bacon. Way to go, Parker.

Lastly, Vincent [Smoker]! Erg. That's about it. Vincent was Vincent. He doesn't have a little 'clan' he belongs to or anything else, it's just Vincent and his dog. He follows a normal Smoker routine, but was often portrayed as overly aware of things, and generally buried in whatever books he could find. He seems to be uninterested with just about everything, sometimes even going as far to just grow bored with following hordes and simply watching them from afar. Why? Who knows. He was a weird guy who only got weirder with the infection. (Beforehand, he was probably still creeping on crowds from a distance, this fella' is a creepy-creep to put it lightly.) Of course, he had to have a quirk too, and that quirk was the fact he would rather strangely tie knots in things when he was distracted. No matter if this was a string, a ribbon, or his tongues. 



I know. I'm an eloquent writer. *Hair swish.*

Anyways, about the art. I tried to capture the different ways their faces were built accordingly to mental image.
I'm not sure how well that turned out, nor how it turned out overall. ^^; The characters are cheezy, yes, buuuut.
I've seen faaaaaar worse, so I guess I'm safe. Idk. 

I didn't reference the strand mutations, so I may have left something out, but I don't know. I'm kinda lazy. 
I also don't like drawing hoods. |D Spent twenty minutes on that alone. OTL

I'll be doing a similiar sheet with my nonL4D zombies. 
(Since there's about 5 of them. |D)

Overall time taken: 2 hours at the most.
